At alt of the stations there were crowds
which cheered and the Lionel made his
appearance on the platform. Karly In the
day the crowds were small, for It was not
generally known that the colonel was pass
in: by. Woift of his approach was flashed
ahead over the wires from one town to
another and as the day went by the crowds
became larger and noisier. Colonel Roose

platform so that his day waa not one of
such complete rest as he had expected. It
was his first long trip since hla return from

sengers all got acquainted with him before
he reached Chicago at D o'clock tonight.
A man walked down the track at Delphos.

him with huge carnations. He made short

Nine ranchmen In western Nebraska have
been Indicted by the federal grand Jury on
tho charge of attempting to drive home
slenders from their claims at the point of
j;uns. according to a report announced
Tho indictments charge conspiracy to
drive from their claims at the points of
guns homesteaders who took uuarter sec
tions of eeinl-arld hind under the Klnkald
homestead law by the defendants. Thosu
Indicted, are Perry 8. Yeast of llsannls.
Nob.; his son, Frank W. Yeast; Ix-Hlle E.
Halllnger, M. C. Hubbel, Einll Anderson,
Wlllmot 7.. Emerson, Harry Sutton, Bonnn

There are four counts In the Indictments
and the specific overt acts mentioned indi
cate an unusual frontier condition,
Ot the foregoing defendants, Wllmolt 'A.
Emerson and Boone H. Hawthorne have
been arretted. Bond was fixed in eaih
iac at SKi.iXH). which they readily gave
Other arrests are expected to follow within
.t day or two.
According to the charges made in the in
dictment, Yeast and hla associates carried
their efforts so far as to secure the In-
arcerntlon In the insane asylum at Hast
ings, Neb., of one of their alleged victims.
When the Klnkald .homestead law was
passed ninny persons went to urum., win
ner. Harden, Cherry and other western
Nebraska counties and took PP quarter sec
tions. The land Is In the sand hills coun
try, but contains many fcrtllo valleys. The
homesteaders generally lived In tents and
depended on tha valley land for their liv
ing. Several big ranchers, among them
Yeast and his associates, have heretofore
depended on this valley land for their
hay for winter feeding and the settling of
homesteaders was resented.
Thirty Persona in Rand.
The indictment charges that a band ot
about thirty persons, headed by Yeast,
went to the homes of many of these home
steader?, amcng them Cashier J. Pavaiher,
.eorge Cai penle. . Oollia I. Graves, Kleorga
labeock, Henry S. Coulson and other and
t v Intimidation and threats of taking their
ives and those of their families forceJ
t'..em to leave their claims.
The specific case of Davuaher la 'men
tioned in detail. It Ih charged that Yeast
.lid the other defendants, accompanied by
i band of cowboys visited Davasher'a home
and after threatening hlmtelf and family
rtllh death If they did not leave the coun-
ry, destroyed his home, broke up his
nachlnery, cut his harness to pieces and In
ther ways mistreated him. Luter, accord
ng to the Indictment, Davasher declared
f the men returned he would meet them
with a gun. Yeast, it Is charged, because.
of this remark, swore out a warrant for
Davasher and had him brought into court.
When the Judgo declined to do more than
,iut Davasher under bonds to keep tha
icace, the Indictment states, Yead con
spired with members nf the county Insanity
ooard and secured Davasher incarceration
ii the usyium.
This latter act, according to the Indict
ment, was committed In a high-handed
manner. On announcement of the court
that Davasher had committed no act which
v. ould Justify a jail sentence, Yeast and
Ins attorney secured tho presence of the
insanity commissioners who, It Is alleged,
went throi gh a mock examination, declared
Davasher insanu and i.-sued a warrant for
t,is arrest. This was served on the spot
and within nn hour he was rushed off to
the asylum without being permitted tu have
counsel or stctire a hearing.
Da vn slier rase Probed.
Davasher'a case was brought to the at
tention of the superintendent of the In
stitution, who was , not there when
Davasher arrived. The superintendent,
however. In looking over the commitment
papers, became suspicious and railed In an
txpert and conducted an txamlnatlon into
the case. He at once decided Davasher
was not insane and advised the latter to
lnytiti.tc habeas corpus proceedings. TliH
was dune and and asylum officials ap
peared in Davasher' behalf, til relcasa
followed a short time ago.
